Why Okebena v.s. Round? Or Why Round v.s. Okabena? They are the same type of lake, pressure? water clearity ? Number of fish? What?

Round Lake traditionally is a better opening day lake than Okabena is for whatever reason who knows. It's not because of pressure because without a doubt there will be a lot more boats on Round than Okabena guaranteed. Right now the DNR nets had shown Round with a lot more fish per net lift than Okabena even though Okabena still had good numbers and probably a better size average also. Kind of like saying why is Sarah traditonally better than Shetek? It just is.

I'll either be trolling for snot rockets on Lime or jigging for eyes on Sarah.

Do you want the truth? Anything you do on Sarah will get you a nice marble eye! Casting, jiging, trolling, drifting, slip bobbering, but I guarantee you that a Barbie pole, and a Lighting MacQueen pole will catch more than my pole! wink.gif

I'm wondering and pondering between going to Lac Qui Parle or Shetek... Any suggestions on what may be the better choice this year for opener?

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
